PeopleReady Business Intelligence Summit 2009 – April 7 Bloomington, MN

Posted by denglishbi on March 21, 2009

Coming up next month on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 is a free one-day event at the Microsoft office in Bloomington, MN.  The PeopleReady Business Intelligence Summit 2009 event will showcase Microsoft’s market-leading business intelligence (BI) products, solution expertise and customer successes.

I will be speaking in the afternoon about business dashboards.  In the current economic climate it is more important than ever for business stakeholders  to have a pulse on what is happening in their organization.  Implementing an Executive Dashboard allows company executives, managers, and stakeholders at all levels to view critical and role appropriate metrics in a dashboard setting, with the ability to drill down within the dashboard and view those metrics at any level. These dashboards allow an organization to more effectively and efficiently execute on strategy, improve business processes and manage key company metrics proactively.

Here are some of the event details:
